What's the expense of traveling from Bridgend to Swindon by car?

The trip fueled by petrol comes to £15.2. This calculation is based on a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and the car's consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon.

For those interested in carpooling, the cost per passenger decreases with more occupants. With two passengers, each person's share is £7.6 (£15.2/2). For three passengers, the cost per person reduces to £5.07 (£15.2/3), and with four passengers, it further decreases to £3.8 (£15.2/4).

To delve deeper into the calculation, let's examine how we arrive at the result:

Firstly, we determine the fuel required by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate. For a journey of 87.45 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 87.45 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 10.6 liters of fuel needed.

Next, we calculate the fuel cost by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. With 10.6 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total cost comes to £15.2.

In summary, the fuel cost for the trip from Bridgend to Swindon amounts to £15.2.

 

The condition of the car can significantly impact fuel consumption. Here's how:

  1. Engine Efficiency: A well-maintained engine operates more efficiently, burning fuel more effectively and consuming less. Regular oil changes, air filter replacements, and tune-ups can ensure optimal engine performance.

  2. Fuel System Health: Issues with the fuel system, such as clogged fuel injectors or a faulty oxygen sensor, can lead to improper fuel combustion and increased consumption. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can help prevent such problems.

  3. Tire Condition: Worn-out or improperly inflated tires increase rolling resistance, requiring more energy (and fuel) to propel the vehicle. Keeping tires properly inflated and replacing worn-out tires can improve fuel efficiency.

  4. Aerodynamics: Damage to the car's body, such as dents or misaligned panels, can disrupt airflow and increase aerodynamic drag, leading to higher fuel consumption. Keeping the car's body in good condition can help maintain optimal aerodynamics.
